This is deeply disturbing, and has been part of one of my very greatest concerns about the integrity of the election: that Trump will be ahead in preliminarly vote totals (not including millions of mail-in ballots) in a state like Pennsylvania key to an electoral college victory. He could try to prematurely claim victory and claim without evidence that later-counted mail-in ballots are fraudulent.
This is so dangerous:
Trump Jr. wasn’t talking about an armed security force, at least not yet: No, he was recruiting volunteers for Trump’s Election Day Operations team, according to a website he boosted in the video.
Campaign spokesperson Erin Perrine, in another video on the site, warned that Democrats “will be up to their old dirty tricks on Election Day to make sure that President Trump doesn’t win. Therefore, she said, the campaign wanted to “cover every polling place in the country with people like you.”
Trump took it a step further, accusing the “radical left” of “laying the groundwork to steal this election from my father.”
“They are planting stories that President Trump will have a landslide lead on election night but will lose when they finish counting the mail-in ballots,” he said. “Their plan is to add millions of fraudulent ballots that can cancel your vote and overturn the election. We cannot let that happen.”
